We attended a meeting of OER projects at the Royal Mint today and had some engaging conversations about our work that has really got us thinking. In particular, we spent about an hour with Dr Simon Ball from JISC TechDis, who volleyed a series of critical questions at us. (It felt a bit like being on BBC’s Newsnight without the sneers.) Having to respond to a set of thoughtful questions about the project has been hugely productive and we came away with new ideas about
- our advisory group,
- the writing of our ‘toolkit’ and
- the broadening of our audience to include disciplinary specialists outside the institution.
